Yishan is and will forever be my favorite non-developer admin.

Even though he made one of the worst decisions in reddit history (on-site rule)

I have the feelz that yishan was forced out and is enjoying his popcorn right now :)

According to Yishan himself, he actually quit because of the overwhelming stress levels. I don't know if that's really true, of course, but he's said that multiple times, in multiple places. If you feel like looking for it, he wrote an answer over on Quora that details why he chose to leave Reddit.

I read somewhere that it wasn't Yishan that made the rule that everyone must work on the job site, but that it came from Sam Altman.

I know something, I know something :-)

A comment from somebody who seems to know his stuff:  

An excerpt:

Sam Altman is the guy who mandated all Reddit remote workers must move to SF, because it's his rule for startups, you know cause his start up was so successful... Reddit employees were originally given a week to decide.
DHH is a great dissenting voice when it comes to venture capital bullshit.

Here is Sam Altman's whole hearted endorsement for Ellen Pao:
